Honda Malaysia just revealed the local pricing of the Honda CR-V e:HEV RS. The range-topping hybrid model, which features a new generation 2.0L e:HEV hybrid system, is priced at a cool RM195,900 on our shores.
This makes the e:HEV RS variant of the CR-V exactly RM14,000 costlier than the highest-end petrol-only V trim of the C-segment SUV. To recap, the CRV 1.5L V is priced at RM181,900, while the mid-tier E variant goes for RM169,900. As for the most affordable base S model, it retails at RM159,900.
Naturally, all variants of the sixth generation CR-V features upgraded Honda Sensing ADAS, which combines a wide-angle radar, camera, and sonar sensor for Low Speed Braking Control. The Lane Keep Assist System (LKAS) is said to be improved too with better line tracing and steering assistance.
Output wise, the CR-V e:HEV RS’ 2.0L e:HEV hybrid powertrain offers 184PS and 335Nm of torque, paired to an e:CVT with a new framework; this is said to be a first for Honda Malaysia. As for the 1.5L turbo engine – found on the S, E, and V models – it does 193PS and 243Nm of torque, mated to a CVT. It’s worth noting that the V variant features “advanced Real Time AWD” as well, as the carmaker puts it.
Other standard features of the new CR-V include eight airbags, auto LED headlights, front LED sequential turn signals, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, as well as the Honda Connect telematics system.
